Developing and Validating New Bolted End-Plate Moment Connection Configurations
End-plate moment connections are widely used, especially in metal buildings, between rafters (beams) and columns or at splice connections in rafters. References such as the AISC Design Guide 16 entitled “Flush and Extended ...
Experimental Investigation of the Multiple Row Extended 1/2 End-Plate Moment Connection
End-plate moment connections are widely used by the low-rise metal building industry to provide the rigid connections necessary in gable frames. There are numerous end-plate moment connection configurations. The multiple ...
Computational Study of Tension Field Action in Gable Frame Panel Zones
A computational study was conducted to evaluate the extent to which the column panel zone in a gable frame knee joint can develop tension field action when subjected to positive bending (top flange of the rafter is in ...
